for defeat. tweeting, dear gop, in four years please don't go for the he's the most electable argument." eric erickson has been on that point for months and that's why he was the last person on board in romney world, if you will, when romney eventually got the nomination. some republicans seem anxious for that 2016 search to begin and begin quickly. they themselves want to get involved in the debate in the future of the party, perhaps with their own 2016 ambitions in mind. florida senator marco rubio who has called on republicans to work harder than ever to communicate to minorities. guess where he's headed in two weeks? he just happens to be traveling to iowa as a guest of the governor. in a series of media appearances yesterday, virginia governor bob mcdonnell called on the party to change. he press advised a news conference to talk about the election. >> we've got to be a lot more inclusive and open and energetic in wanting people to join our team by expressing why these conservative values are good for people of all races, creeds, colors and national origin. >> the guy repopulation mcdonn
>>> on the broadcast tonight, after a history-making election night, four more years for president obama tonight. how he won, why and why mitt romney lost. and the message the voters across america sent last night. we'll have a look at the trends and the results. >>> also, tonight, the east coast is taking another hit of extreme weather, and it will only get worse. it means more rough weather of people hit by hurricane sandy. the storm and election night news begins now. >>> good evening, while the nation tries to recover from a deep recession, and in a presidential race we were after all, all told was as close and as tight as they get. president obama, the 44th president of the united states was reelected last night. he was somehow able to stitch together a convincing victory, s win i winning just about all the battleground states that were so heavily fought over in the most expensive race in u.s. history. it was early this morning when the president appeared with his family, becoming the third consecutive two-term president we elected. not happening since the presidents jefferson
>> fox news election alert. barack obama has been reelected the president of the united states. >> what does that mean for freedom? >> i have no idea. >> that is our show. >> it is finally over now we have four more years of barack obama up. what does that mean to me? freedom. in chicago the president's lugging supporters asked what does that mean for freedom? >> freedom? >> freedom? >> i have no idea. [laughter] >> freedom? freedom? [laughter] >> let's dance. most people had no clue what to do with the question. that is upsetting to me. the man who has taught me a lot about freedom david those. were you surprised? >> i am dumbfounded. i would not expect they would give the answers i would like but i thought they would have an answer. >> it is this what good government give me? free down is not part of that. >> there used to be dead counter culture left like the marijuana freedom doing your own thing even if they'd understand starting a business is also doing your own thing. it is disappointing they don't even big of a connection between the democratic election and the impact o
to the most secretive white house of all time, you were not told about it until after the election. we will have a full investigation into this matter, coming up later this hour. but first things first. is america still a center right nation? it it would be sill tow say that a nation that elects barack obama, especially one that re-elects him is a nation that remains in important respect, center right. the question is, what do do you about that? i guess one option is despair for some. people are lost, the country's lost. it's all hopeless and we may as well pick up our marbles and go home. that's one option. i think we ought to reject that. the second is anger. yell at the american people for not being as conservative as woe wish and we were right and they ought to be more conservative. that might make you feel good. you may feel morally superior to the masses and tell make conserveatism, a minority movement for a lock, long time. i think we as conservatives, we should reject that option as well. there is a third option, we can jettison our principles and become liberal-lite, embrace b
that already we know some of the usual suspects even days after the election, the get out the vote effort on the democratic side was, appears to have been a master piece that will probably have impact on national elections going into the future. republicans have a lot to learn there. and there have been demographic changes in america. at the end of the day, i think my surprise about the election was that it was not so close in a way everybody was thinking we'd be up until four in the morning or counting ohio votes for two weeks. that didn't happen. this was a solid win for the president and i think the republican party has much to think about here going into the future. >> paul: thinking is always good. and maybe a step back and give at least some time to think. you wrote in the column, the republicans don't need to change their fundamental principles, belief in small government and so on, but maybe the way they present the principles. >> the way, the way they -- the way the party goes forward sometimes, it is the way -- is the way that unnecessarily, i think, occasionally turns people of
. there is no more election and no more excuses. so wmakers finally do their jobs? >> we are going to go over the financial cliff. everybody in the obama camp knows we are going over the financial cliff. whether we raise taxes on the rich or not, we are going over -- raising taxes, confiscating the wealth's money would not save us. >> there is an alternative to going over the fiscal cliff, in whole or in part. it involves making real changes to the financial structure of entitlement programs and reforming our tax code to curb special-interest loopholes and deductions. by working together and creating a fairer, simpler, cleaner tax code, we can give our country a stronger, healthier economy. >> i went to badbed, thinking all of this discussion about this election being the election that will tell us whether or not we have lost the country. i went to bed last night thinking we have lost the country. >> congress is the major shackle, the dysfunction in congress. we see other signs of lift. we have to have a congress that works together. between now and the year's end, that's our opportunity to t
is garnering a lot of attention. we are only a few short days removed from the presidential election and we are days away from explosive closed-door hearings, related to the benghazi coverup. petraeus was among the group of high-level government officials slated to appear before the house and the senate intelligence committees. but fox news has confirmed, petraeus will no longer be in attendance next week. what impact will this have on the inquiry into the benghazi terror attack? joining me with the answer to that question and more is someone at the forefront of this investigation. house oversight committee member, jasieve chavits. let's start with the jaw-dropping news about general david petraeus. we have learned there was an fbi investigation underway. i think there are a number of questions raised, including, you know, at what point did the director of the fbi become aware of this? why was this just announced today? talk about your perspective on the implication, broadly speaking on our nation's intelligence efforts and the benghazi investigation? >> well, first of all, it's sad fall fr
. is not unusual for the democrats, in october 2000 clinton was concerned about getting gore elected and when they almost sunk the naval ship cole, clinton respond happened in no way just as president obama didn't respond with benghazi. americans can die if their political agenda is forward. >> if it is a move to prevent him from revealing what he knows he can be subpeona. >> the congressman said he hoped he didn't have to subpeona him. the administration will try to bury united states in a lot of the irrelevant detail. we watched for seven hours americans being killed and did nothing. you can't get around that information. petraeus was the one in the community who three weeks ago came out with a statement that was clear. no one at any level of the cia stopped the assistance from going to the men under attack. that was close as he could come to say it was the white house. >> and the administration officials are saying the resignation had nothing to do with the libya terror attack investigation upon. but comes as he was set to testify in congress about what he knew. what do you make of the dep
, this world of the actual election results, as a stranger in a strange land. for days now it's been in a daze wandering around wondering, what gimmick switched the channels? what odd happening bounced them from the world they believed in, saw all around them, to the world they find themselves so suddenly and shockingly now a part of, the world that is truly undeniably america. i'm joined to talk about this by the former rnc chair michael steele and mother jones washington bureau chief david corn. he's the author of the ebook "47 percent ,"a great book and a great get. he's an msnbc political analyst. let's start now. in politico jonathan martin describes the gop media cocoon writing, in this reassuring conservative pocket universe rasmussen polls are gospel, the benghazi controversy is worse than watergate, fair and balanced isn't just marketing, and dick morris is a political seer. this morning former house speaker and republican presidential candidate newt gingrich said he never saw the gop defeat even coming and said it's time for a serious republican postmortem. let's listen to newt. >> i
analyst and mother jones washington bureau chief, david corn. the bitter partisan marathon election is over, but what of the bitter partisan marathon gridlock in washington? there are glimmers of hope that lawmakers are prepared to follow advice offered by both presidential candidates. >> our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people's work. >> and in the coming weeks and months i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together. >> maybe not initially, as "the new york times" reports, after his speech, mr. obama tried to call both mr. boehner and the senator republican leader, mitch mcconnell but was told they were asleep. >> wake them up, for goodness sake. >> he is the president. >> wake him up. >> yesterday, yesterday, senate majority leader harry reid struck a tone of cautious optimism. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's bettor work together. i want to work together but i want everyone to also understand, you can't push us around. >> hours later there was some reason for hope. th
. looks like they did a good job of that. one tragedy of this election is that obama's dirty tactics have been vindicated. we are going to see this kind of tactics, replicated for many years to come, thanks to barack obama. politics is now dirtier than it was and tell get worse with others trying to perfect this politics of personal destruction. now, obviously, we all wish the election had come out the other way. at least i do on this program. and the prospect of four more years of bam bottom as president is not one that sits well with me. but we can't give up the fight for the causes we believe in and the country that we so love. i support -- i suppose it's fine to feel sorry for yourself and the country. last night was a terrific body blow. we all know it. but we need to recover, dust ourselves off, get off the canvas and begin our work again. because we really don't have a choice. we are not sunshine patriots. the test of character is how we are going to handle ourselves in the hard times. these are hard times. so we need to redouble our efforts and do more, not less. and if anything,
>> this week on the journal editorial report, a complete post election wrap-up. a look how president obama won a second term and what he's likely to do with it. and plus, how should republicans respond and regroup for 2014 and beyond. from tax hikes to collective bargaining to gay marriage, how some big measures, across the states across the country. welcome to the journal, editorial report. i'm paul gigot, a divided country gave president obama a second chance on tuesday, handing him a narrower, but decisive win over republican rival mitt romney. here is with a look how he did it. dan henninger, and jason riley and washington columnist kim strassel. start with you, when you get a defeat like this, there's no one thing necessarily that explains it. but why don't you pick out your most important? >> look, i think there were two things key to the obama victory, one was that very ol on, they ran this very high dollar attack campaign against mitt romney, a bit of a character assassination throughout the summer and mitt romney didn't respond to it and he didn't recover from it.
a day after his election. good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. let the negotiations begin. house and senate leaders have now staked out their opening positions. now the president will put down his markers. we're only moments from his scheduled first post-election speech at the white house addressing the most urgent crisis of the lame-duck session, the fiscal cliff. without a deal, the congressional budget office now projects that if the tax cuts expire and the budget cuts kick in, unemployment would jump to 9.1% by the end of next year and the nation's economy could slide into another recession. joining me for our daily fix, special panel, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com, mark halperin, senior political analyst for "time" and msnbc. >> greg, u.s. economics editor for the economist and "new york times" andrew ross sorkin, co-host of "squawk box" on cnbc. welcome all. first chris cizilla and mark halperin, the political side of this, chris, your reporting so far, we've seen speaker boehner today, what chuck schumer had to say, the pr
election iran fires at a drone. why are we only finding out about this now? >> steve: weekend after hurricane sandy left thousands homeless . we are looking at where the homeless people are going . a massive tent city and we are there live on the friday bitterly cold morning. >> brian: they are opening up a place for them. outraged over the president doing first order of business should be to stick a fork in it. >> steve: stick a fork in it. >> brian: "fox and friends" starpts right now. >> steve: the reason i was struggling in a scramble. tomorrow is the marine's birthday and. and we have jiie whit lock pins. i will wear mine in the entire program. >> most people don't have the prive ledge of watching you get dressed. >> steve: what do you mean. >> putting things on. >> steve: nice ally. >> great to be back in the land of the light. >> brian: why are you taunting me? it is so bad on long island they are asking the defense department to take over. that's how bad the power authority is. when i say disaster, i am understating it. >> steve: you are. >> brian: and confusion . >> steve:
the investigation into david petraeus and why it was kept secret until after the election. let's begun with john allen now finds himself in the middle of this growing scandal. he currently sios at commander of nato forces in afghanistan. and jill kelly said that she had been receiving bizarre comments from paula broadwell. what did the e-mails say? they characterize the messages as, quote, flirtatious in nature and inappropriate. we have just learned that two u.s. officials tell fox that it was more than just flirting. they describe them as sexually split and equivalent of phone sex over e-mail. he denies it but something is not adding up. we heard from the father of broadwell. this is something else entirely and the truth will come out. there is a lot more than meets the eye. if we are to believe the story we are told all of this started because paula broadwell sent anonymous e-mails to kelly. it's like cat ties stuff, phrases who do you think you are? you parade around the base. you need to take it down a notch. none of them reportedly referenced violence but the f.b.i. launched a full investi
. the election is over. now it's time to get to work. >> so talk, soledad, of working to the. but you might say speaker boehner has said tax rates for the wealthy can't go up. they're at 35% right now. they're scheduled to go up above 39% by the end of the year. then you say president obama said he will veto anything that does not increase tax rates on wealthy americans. you wonder where is the middle ground there? the middle ground, it appears, and we don't know the details on this, would be moving towards a framework on tax reform. you know right now, even a lot of people who might fall under that 35% tax rate, income bracket, they don't pay that. that's not their effective rate. so if you simplify the tax code. maybe some of the change comes out in the wash. you could actually increase revenue. increase tax dollars without changing that tax rate. we don't know the details, though. and they really have to be worked out and this week is really the start of that process. >> the sound of that ticking would be the clock of the fiscal cliff clock that we're monitoring because it all comes to an en
. what next for the man who ran for re-election who came hoim to face challenges for president obama what next? tay marktoday markets took a no dive. that is why we are here again. in the speeches to the statements today. all found ways of saying they get it. they understand the challenges and will rise to meet them listen. >> we want our children to live in america that isn't burdened by debt and isn't weakened by inekwquality and isn't threaten by the warming kwagity. >> at a time like this we can't rsk bickering and posturing. >> it is for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges that we face as a nation. >> it is better to dance than to fight. better to work together everything doesn't have to be a fight. together, what is next on the fiscal cliff on how republicans will deal with the diverse forward not looking back. we begin on the coming fiscal cliff when the budget cuts kick in. >> welcome to the capital. you heard everyone singing the kumbaya tune. you heard john boehner talking about the fact on the issue that has divided them on the fiscal cliff issu
a republican leader saying they believe they were stonewall in the days leading up to the election. what was very clear from the beginning of the attack, it was very coordinated. there are terrorist activities active in benghazi, in the months leading up to this. of course, there are more than dozens of suspects. but the administration itself has to come clean, what happened before, what happened during the attack and then they have to explain how they misled the american people and the world about what really went down in benghazi. >> something went clearly wrong here. it just seems to me, there was influence from outside and that should never happen when you are dealing with the intelligence community. >> why does anybody vote for a democrat isn't democrat party is the party of stuff. the democrat party's the party that takes care of you, when you don't work. the democrat party is the party that is going to punish the people who do work. with higher, tas. why does anybody vote democrat? >> greta: dick morris joins us. goodine, dick. >> good evening. good to be here. >> greta: good to h
if this election had gone the other way. john boldin, not susan rice, would be the hot talk for secretary of state. war clouds would be overhead and the bugles blaring would be marching to iran. just think self-deportation would be the name of the game for immigration. voter suppression would be the toast of the town, or certain parts of town. the extinction of health care would be hr-1, up there on the front burner for congressional action. just think, if the election had gone the other way the rich would be basking in the best tax protection known to man, a real-life, genuine mandate to leave them and their money alone. but a funny thing happened on the way to the white house. people voted for tax fairness. they voted to make the rich pay their share, specifically voted that way for one thing because the republicans kept warning them not to. and so it came to pass today that president obama said just that at his press conference. give the middle class their tax cuts, speaker boehner. cut it loose so they can go christmas shopping, senator mcconnell. it's what the people voted for. that's why the
's a perfect storm of the fog of war, if we can mix metaphors. you have a presidential election, you have the fbi and the cia kind of going at each other. you have an interagency dispute over the benghazi affair. let's not forget that two weeks ago, "the wall street journal" had a pretty damning article kind of pointing the finger at the cia for the benghazi debacle. a lot of people said then petraeus got thrown under the bus. i don't know if we're going to find out what the hell is going on here for weeks, months and even years. >> lindsey graham says petraeus better testify this week. his number two is now going to talk about the lead-up and what happened in terms of benghazi. but do you think he'll eventually have to testify? how much pressure do you think there is coming from capitol hill? >> i think there will be quite a bit of pressure. but it's not like his deputy isn't reading the same files that he is. i think they'll get just as informative a briefing from his deputy as you would from petraeus. but there will be pressure from capitol hill, definitely, going forward. we'll have t
as possible. and the question -- it is so suspicious. comes days after the election and then, you know, days after the election, and then days before he is supposed to testify. now at the very least, shannon, he should absolutely testify this week. there is no reason, no excuse not to have him continue to testify this week. >> congressman -- [overlapping dialogue] >> i agree with the congressman. he should be testifying. i would say it ought to be related to what happened in benghazi. >> do you ever think the timing of how this played out is suspicious? >> of course. it's like a high duh factor. a few days before he's supposed to testify, he's out. obviously, there was control over the timing. he had to leave before he was supposed to go before congress. that doesn't look right, that doesn't smell right. anybody who understands what happens in washington, when a person is pushed out a few days before a hearing, that's the reason for congress to call that person and answer questions about what happened in benghazi and how were four americans killed as a result, what role did the cia play? >>
--61 million on romney's campaign. but we really saw what wall street thought after the election when the stock market had the worst day of the year. you could see that was definitely election related. you saw investment banks get very hard hit because there will probably be a lot more regulation. you saw that utilities went down and hospitals and insurers would benefit from obamacare and managed health companies go down. wall street said we don't like this. we're seeing a lot of lobbyists come out with more conciliatory language. there is hope there can be a compromise. because in the fiscal cliff comes on january 1. >> i think the cbo was saying 9.1% unemployment and it could be catastrophic and drive us into another recession. look if taxes go up on the wealthy and that has been the president's mantra, could that be a long term drag on the stock market? what does it do to people 401-ks? >> it's definitely less incentive to invest in stocks. not so much as rich people but people at the level tend to be small business owners. they are the ones who hire. that is a huge issue because j
. >> gretchen: are you assuming it would not be told after the election. there are many allegations regarding david petraeus. as you heard he resigned on friday after having an affair with paula broadwell who was his bigrapper. she had gone to west point and harvard and valedictorian of her class. she met him upon at harvard and that's when the relationship started. >> brian: she has a book tour. and very impressive and extremely bright and knows the military and unbelievably fit and since 2009 there seems to be something else going on. >> steve: how did we find out about this? thanks to this woman here. she's 37 years old. her name is jill kelly and a social planner in madill for joint specialops. in the month of may she got threatening e-mails. she got five and 10 of them. >> brian: you want to tell. mrs. petraeus and the husband who is a cancer surgeon and david petraeus. >> steve: far left is her sister who is a lawyer who represents the whistle-blowers. jill kelly got e-mails. i know what you are up to and back away from my guy. she didn't know who they were from and about. she felt thre
in washington. the president know this is. he knows that he and i can work together. the election is over. now it's time to get to work. >> speaker boehner said that with a straight face. didn't bat an eyelash. can we take it at face value? >> he's reasonable and responsible. who hasn't been is the tea party caucus. the big problem that speaker boehner had during the debt ceiling crisis is he was part of the grand bargain with the president but when he said no. but after the election, speaker boehner and now that the american people have spoken, speaker boehner has more weight behind him to say to his caucus, folks, get in line. >> in last night's interview the speaker talked about obama care. i want to remind everybody what he had to say about that. >> the alexeis that. the the president is reelected. obama care is the law of the land. >> but you won't be spending the time next year trying to repeal obama care? >> there may be parts of it that we believe need e to be changed. we may do that. no decisions at this point. >> okay. obama care is the law of the land. maybe parts of it could be cha
